Two new Apple retail stores will open on Saturday, April 27 in Melbourne, Australia and Quebec, Canada.

Apple's new Melbourne store will be located in the Highpoint Shopping Centre, a large indoor mall with more than 500 stores. This will mark the fifth Apple retail location in the Melbourne area.

At store openings, Apple typically hands out commemorative T-shirts to the first 1,000 customers to visit. Both stores are set to open at 10 a.m. and have begun accepting reservations for workshops and Genius bar appointments.

I can't see why. Usually Apple will wait until the best store location is up for sale but shops along Bourke St have changed hands a few times over the past decade.

I always imagined Apple parking themselves in Fed Square, or in Flinders St somewhere. A Melbourne CBD store should be an iconic location... but there is already a NextByte Apple Reseller right opposite Fed Square.


Still, millions of residents in Melbourne's West are crying out for joy now that we don't have to travel an hour to get to a store!

The retail location should be noted as Montréal, Canada. The City of Québec is located more than 3 hours away from this store. and this store is located down the street from Montréal.
